Looks like a conversation between a student and a textbook's former owner:

(Lottie Ellis)

Hello Lottie -

Guess who wrote this - you don't even know me - because I don't know you. Wouldn't you like to meet me - you would if you knew who I am. Well ta! ta!


I'll bet you are a Soph. Your books look like it. So neat and clean. Ha! Ha! I am writing lightly so you can erase this, am I know kind? I think so.

Found in "New Composition and Rhetoric for Schools" by Robert Herrick. Published by Scott, Foresman and Co., 1911.
